The Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) is Australia's largest, oldest and most popular sporting venue. The MCG has hosted plenty of international cricket, including the first-ever Test and the 1992 World Cup final, countless VFL/AFL Grand Finals, the 1956 Olympic Games and 2006 Commonwealth Games. It will also host the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. Other sporting spectacles include FIFA World Cup soccer qualifiers, rugby league home and away matches and State of Origin and international rugby union clashes. Apart from its sporting events, the MCG has also witnessed many blockbuster music concerts, and even Pope John Paul II held a mass there when he visited Melbourne in 1986. The MCG has a total capacity of 100,024 people, comprising 95,024 seats and 5000 standing room spaces. The stadium also houses the National Sports Museum, which includes some of the most priceless pieces of memorabilia in Australian sporting history.

I went to watch the finals between AUS vs NZ on 29 March. I have been to many cricket grounds around the world and found this the easiest to get in and out of the grounds. Very easy to walk around. No waiting lines for the bathrooms or food/drinks. Good options for food. And most importantly, what an amazing stadium.... More

Our tour was lead by an MCG member whose knowledge was amazing. To stand on that hallowed turf was one of the great experiences of my life. We saw the change rooms, the press rooms, the Long Room and so much more but it was the tour guide that really made it. Added to this was a visit to the... More

I enjoyed the tour and the ease of access to the city via the train. The guide was very knowledgable and made it very interesting but you do go at quite a brisk pace so not a lot of time for photos on the way. This is a very impressive place where many important events have occurred to shape Australia's... More

Watched the Bombers play the Blues. The staff seem really lovely and keep everything well maintained and clean. Definitely worth going to a game here and experiencing the atmosphere from the crowd.

Its spacious even in the stands. Lots of eating options as well. very close to public transport. Tickets... More
